Experimental lo-fi synth pop. Apsis Lappet is the solo project of Texas native Nate Kitchens. His music is as catchy as it is non-conventional.

|Thisistar - Tardiss|
It's great to welcome back Tardiss to No-Source with their brand new album, "Thisistar." This album picks up where "Blue" left off, further refining their sound into something that full bridges lo-fi indietronic and hi-fi IDM. The album kicks off with the over nine minute sprawling epic "Willbury Road." Downtempo beats are the center stage for this album. Long rhythmic grooves intersect with short interludes before fading out in the last few minutes of the album with the majestic ambient piece "...
